good lord.....yea a bodylift is cheap for our trucks. $220ish. But gosh....your got a 2wd edge, man hit up the spindles and stay away from the bodylift. Your lucky. u got a 2wd edge. If it were myself, i'd throw a set of spindles and an AAL on that biatch and call her good.Us 4x4 guys, don't have the option of spindle lifting, so we go for the BL tilwe canafford the suspensionlift. Just my thoughts.

spindles are what your front brakes ride on......spindle is what connects to the upper and lower a-arms/control arms. A spindle lift lowers the point of which the brakes ride on....creating lift. AAL is short for add a leaf....creates lift in the rear by adding another leaf and kinda rearches the spring pack. I suggested it, as you are 2wd, and it's ALOT cheaper to suspension lift it, compaired to a 4x4. Lift spindles are typicially 3-3.5" of lift.

body lifts are ok, sometimes i wish i would not have put mine on.
i just hate seeing my frame every time i look at my truck, even though the frame shows very little on rangers, its just enough to bug me.
but dont let this get in the way of getting one for yourself, im a perfectionist you see, but there are ways to hide the frame, like sidebars.

I have a quick question about a body lift. How hard is it to install if you have basically no mechanical background. My dad would most likely help me put it in, and he knows a fair amount about vehicles, but im a noob when it comes to the mechanical part of vehicles. Are the instructions easy to follow, or would I have problems?

If you want looks....I'd just do the body lift. You can get the Summit one for $130, and it includes everything, bumper brackets, steering extension. Only thing you might need is the shifter extender if you have a 5 speed. I don't see a point in getting the Performance Accessories body lift for $50 more, the Summit one is fine.
